Durapipe’s SuperFLO ABS chilled water pipework system has been installed as part of an upgrade to the chilled water system at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.
In order to cater for future planned expansion works to the hospital, a new chilled water system was required to ensure that the hospital’s air conditioning and ventilation systems can withstand an increase in capacity. As a result, contractor Metromec has installed a new 800kW chiller and required a reliable pipework system to work with the new unit.
Daikin recently approved the use of 'alternative pipework methods' on its air conditioning and heat pump systems.
The announcement comes in the wake of Mitsubishi Electric that also approved the use of alternative jointing and pipework methods on their heating and cooling systems. The news will be a relief for companies like Reflok that have joint systems that use pressure and not heat to connect air conditioning or heat pump units together.
